JEREMIAH 31:3 The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.” (NKJV)
God’s love for us is an everlasting love, in other words it is an eternal love. God has always loved us and will always do; there is nothing that can cause God to stop loving us. The beauty of God’s love for us is that there was never a time in whole eternity that we weren’t loved by God. Ephesians 1:3-6 shows that we were loved by God even before the foundation of the world, Psalm 139:1-3 shows that we were loved by God when we were knit in out mothers’ wombs and Psalm 71:6 shows that we were loved by God on the day we were born.
The intensity of God’s love is revealed in His son Jesus Christ who God gave us because of His love for us and who for no fault of His own laid down His life as a substitution for ours.
Many a times we feel that we are the ones who have chosen God but the truth of the fact is that God chose us and He drew us to Himself. And since He chose us and drew us to Himself there is no way He will let go of us. Only we can let go of Him and stray away, but, even in that case He is a good shepherd who will come searching for us and never rest till He finds us. That’s the everlasting love of our God.
